I have successfully tested new EMC NetWorker V8.0 with MHVTL V1.4.4. No issues encountered during device configuration or testing. Backup and Restore were normal ... I have used the GUI to discover and configure all MHVTL devices.
I have NW 7.6SP2 an very strange issue with tape capacity. I configured library with LTO6 tapes/drives, default capacity set to 2621440 and all tapes updated with edit_tape to this capacity and density:
Media density code: 0x5a
Media type code : 0x0e
Media description : Ultrium 6/16T
Tape Capacity : 2748779069440 (2560 GBytes)
Media type : Normal data
Media : read-write
Remaining Tape Capacity : 2748779069440 (2560 GBytes)
Total num of filemarks: 0
Hdr: End of Data(05), sz 0, Blk No.: 0, data 0
So, when I label tape in networker, mount it and look at properties->volume information, I see capacity of 604M. And it writes exactly this amount of data to tape before reporting EOT. If I set volume default capacity in drive properties, it labels tapes with proper capacity.
Anyone else have this issue? It seems mhvtl is to reporting tape capacity properly to networker.
Nia is no longer involved with mhvtl-gui.. I understand he discovered there was a life outside mhvtl-gui and has move on..
You have not provided any details as to your issue. If you can provide a problem description along with any logs to show/highlight what is going on, others on this list will be happy to provide assistance.
